Tappie Puzzles review (iPad)November 11, 2011
♫ “Jigsaw falling into place
There is nothing to explain”
10 word description: Shape matching puzzles for age 4+. 6 or 12 piece puzzles.
10 word review: Varied collection, kept my 4-year old’s attention longer than expected.
You will like this if you enjoy: Doing shape matching puzzles (and you’re around 4 years old).
The good news: Plenty of different puzzles. Very good animation (on the ones that are animated). Colourful images.
The bad news: The central swipe-to-select menu isn’t very responsive. Tapping one icon (on that menu) often opens one of the adjacent puzzles instead of the desired one, much to the chagrin of an impatient child…
Arcadelife verdict: Pretty good kids’ puzzle app. The animations, for example the polar bear squeezing into his igloo, are of a very high quality. Not exactly Pixar but much better than you might expect in an app like this. It kept my son entertained for longer than I expected and I’ve used some of his comments in the screenshot captions. The unresponsive puzzle selection menu needs to be sorted out, which is why I had to mark this down a bit.
